A barn was destroyed and two adjacent sheds damaged in a fire in Walworth this afternoon.
The fire started in a barn on Route 350 between Plank Road and Atlantic Avenue. The barn was part of what the owner called a "rescue chicken" operation, taking in chickens whose owners didn't want them anymore or from farms that shut down. She sold the eggs and used the money to offset her costs.
Some of the chickens and their food were lost in the fire. A donkey that was outside the barn was uninjured.
